Description:Scope of project:
Utilize existing floorplan create a new floor plan for both the 5th floor and the 6th floor to be the guide for a master plan, which will be executed over a period 4 years.
Remodel Cost per Square Foot:
The target remodel cost per square foot is to be as low as possible, ideally $15 per square foot, but practically speaking, we understand it will be more like $30 to $60. Try to utilize existing walls as much as your design will allow while still accomplishing the needs listed below.
The floorplan needs to accommodate the diverse needs of a fast paced and dynamic global non-profit ministry, providing the word of God to almost 100 Million children a year around the world.
We need more collaborative and creative space, for team and department centered work.
Also strive to allow each person to have personal consistent space free of distraction. It would also be nice to have a quiet area or retreat where they can focus if they want to get away from their desk.
There also needs to be social areas and project rooms to accommodate talking and planning for a couple of hours, as well as for a couple of days, where it will not distract others.
Another priority is to accommodate our remote employees when they are in office 3-4 times a year. Also keep them integrated them into office culture somehow while staff are remote, through use of technology, some sort of video office/screen bank where people remote staff can have the equivalent of a desk. We are not entirely sure how to solve this problem, but it is something helpful.
There needs to be approximately 4 to 6 rooms converted to hotel style housing to accommodate remote staff when they are visiting. These accommodations need to be somehow isolated from the office. This would likely be on the 5th Floor Right side, those rooms are all plumbed for individual bathrooms already.
Here are some Functional Space Categories that we should incorporate:
1. Conference Rooms-
a. Small room, seating for 4, b. Medium room, seating for 8, c. Large room, seating for 16
2. Collaborative Office Space
3. Personal Office Space
4. Quiet Room/ Retreat
5. Skype / Call Rooms (Phone booths)
6. Transient Desk Space for out of office/remote workers who are rarely in but need a place to work when they arrive.
7. Lodging which will need to be isolated.
8. IT (Currently on 2nd Floor)
9. Film Studio Space (Currently on 2nd Floor)
10. Remote Worker Space (Cyber Office?)
11. Break Room/Kitchen
12. Reception Area on the 6th Floor in front of the Elevator.
14. Printing Services easily accessible on both floors.
15. Mail Services (Currently on 2nd Floor)
16. Contractor Desk Space
17. Event Hosting / Large Workshop Space
18. Some sort of command center with live feeds of our activity around the world and statistics to give visitors to our ministry an impressive overview of our work with real time data.
19. Standing desk and sitting desk options
I know it is a lot to consider. Currently our offices are located only on the left side of the building. So we are expanding to include both halves of the 5th and 6th floor.
Attached is a breakdown of employee numbers for each department as well as the results of a recent survey regarding the remodel as well as some photographs of the office.
Consider that we have global teams all over the world.
Breaking out the office into department specific spaces may be one helpful way of organizing things.
Feel free to deviate from the central circular hallway we have now, I attached a few other circular shaped offices I found to compare how others approached unusual layouts.
You do not need to consider the ducting or electrical, try to keep the plumbing close to where it is.
Try to have fun and be creative, we are looking for an optimum way to utilize the space. A 3D model is not required, we are only looking for a conceptual floor plan, but if you feel it would help more clearly communicate your vision, then please do.
Also, we are hoping for lots of entries, so if you have a couple of ideas of how to adjust the space, feel free to enter multiple ideas.
Wants:How well it accommodates all the diverse needs mentioned above.
